Salah's training regime has been critical to his success.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has provided a glimpse of the training regime that has fueled his meteoric rise to one of the world’s best players.

“Normally, I get up early to go for training which starts either in the morning in the afternoon,” the 25-year-old said in an interview with Egyptian network ON Ent.

“Then I come here for recovery for almost two hours. Therapy for any injuries or specific massage so you mitigate any suffering of your body.

“After that, I go to the gym here at the club which is optional for players. After training, I do stretching and recovery again. Finally, I go to the pool at the club or with Macca (daughter) at home. I finish all these activities around 7 or 8pm.

“Training is not that long but I prolong the training in order to be ready for the coming matches.”

Salah also revealed the input manager Jurgen Klopp, who has been instrumental in unlocking the Egyptian’s potential, provides in his training.

“I arrange the whole process with the coach since he has the final word about all these activities but he gives us the choice to go to the gym, or do therapy but shooting and finishing training must be done through him.”

Salah has withstood the physicality of Premier League football to shine.

If anyone doubts that Mohamed Salah‘s latest experience of Premier League football has been an instant love affair, take the word of the Liverpool star himself.

“I love it because the football is fast,” Salah said in an interview with Egyptian network ON Ent.

“The Italian league is a very good one but it relies more on tactics so the tempo of play is a bit slower.

“That’s why I prefer the Premier League as its rhythm is faster. I wanted to come from the first day I left.”

Salah’s first spell in England, with Chelsea, was a disappointing one as he rarely got playing time under then-Blues manager Jose Mourinho, and subsequently moved to Italy to revive his career.

“When I came back, it was a challenge, all of it was a challenge. When I was offered this chance, I was told to stay with Roma.

“They said you already had the chance in the Premier League before, it wasn’t as successful as Roma so stay there where the players love you and you are in harmony with the fans the club.

“But I saw something they couldn’t see. Thanks to God every one said I was right and I’m happy with it.”

The physicality of the Premier League was one reason people cited when suggesting Salah could struggle on his return to the league, but the Egyptian’s resilience has been an underrated aspect of his stunning season.

“Some players may kick you intentionally to scare you. You know when skillful footballers who make the difference are kicked once, they get worried or scared.

“I get kicked and overcame it and then just watch for the next one.”

Mohamed Salah says his new goal celebration which has become instantly iconic – arms wide, deadpan stare – was a spur-of-the-moment reaction to his crucial goal in the first leg of Liverpool‘s Champions League quarterfinal against Manchester City.

“It happened spontaneously against Manchester City. It wasn’t prepared,” the 25-year-old said in an exclusive interview with Egyptian network ON Ent.

“Maybe the goal was very good for me, that’s why I ran to the fans and I celebrated in that way.

“Afterwards, I found it a good way and everyone liked it. I said OK, it is better than sliding on my knees.

“Everyone criticises sliding on knees anyway.”
